Ricciardo defends Vettel against critics

Was Sebastian Vettel lucky enough to be in his four World Cup titles with Red Bull? A reproach that always gets food when the Ferrari pilot doesn’t work. Like now, when Scuderia lost the momentum of last year’s season, or in the year 2014, when Daniel Ricciardo played Heppenheimer in his first Red Bull season with 71 points and three wins, he took the lead on the wall.

But the Aussie”finds in the interview with”Motorsport-Total.com”, that Vettel’s achievements are being falsely belittled.” People say he had the best car. But you have to get the performance right on time when it comes to it,”Ricciardo knows. He had a very good run in his four titles and a very good car.”

With Mark Webber, Vettel had in his Red Bull success period alongside the tough rivals Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton also had”a fast teammate”with Mark Webber, who had this”on courses where it matters to the driver, has proved over and over again.” Of course, you need some luck, but in order to perform at this level, you have to be good. I would never underestimate that.”

In spite of everything, he is aware that he has not yet found the possibilities of a vettel in his time with Red Bull. No wonder he thinks with a little sadness about the great success of his racing stable: “Of course I would like the car Seb had then. That would be cool.”
